TM Retreats for Meditators (for men)

The Purusha Capital is an ideal place to take a TM Weekend Retreat. Set in the scenic grandeur of the Appalachian mountains, every aspect of the Capital has been designed for deep experiences, maximum comfort, and enjoyment of the beauty of nature. Course participants can enjoy deep silence in the serene atmosphere created by many long-term members of the Maharishi Purusha Program.

“Over the years I've attended many wonderful courses in many locations, but the recent course at the new Purusha Capital in West Virginia was unique. The Purusha members were welcoming, the surroundings beautiful, and the silence golden and all pervading. Anyone who waits to attend a course here will wish they had come sooner.”
—Basil Henderson

A weekend or week of deep, revitalizing rest and profound knowledge

The TM® Weekend Retreat provides the opportunity to spend a weekend gaining deep, revitalizing rest through a structured program of extended TM practice along with profound knowledge about the development of higher states of human consciousness. This unique experience of deep silence over an entire weekend results in a dramatic reduction of accumulated stress and tension. Participants report that even one such weekend boosts energy, clarity, happiness, and health for months afterwards. Courses provide a settled, relaxed atmosphere away from home and work responsibilities.

The relaxed daily routine of a TM Weekend Retreat includes:

  • Extended periods of your TM practice, including group meditations.
  • Exclusive video presentations from Transcendental Meditation technique founder Maharishi Mahesh Yogi and other thought leaders on a wide range of topics that will broaden your understanding of the growth of human potential and enrich your experiences in meditation.
  • Time for in-depth questions and answers on the different experiences you are having during meditation and in daily life.
  • Personal instruction in easy-to-practice Maharishi YogaSM Asanas, as well as a simple breathing technique of Pranayama. These gentle mind/body programs are effective in helping to remove surface stress and strain and smoothing the way to deepen your TM practice. Everything is taken care of for you.

All of this is enjoyed in a peaceful, pleasant atmosphere, in the company of other meditators. You can enjoy delicious vegetarian meals and walks with your fellow course participants. The cost for weekend courses will be kept to a minimum to allow as many people as possible to attend. The course fee includes your room, meals, and all meetings and instruction sessions.

Many TM practitioners take time for a TM Retreat on a regular basis. They report that just one weekend of a TM Retreat offers revitalization that lasts for months. Stress and tension melt away even more quickly, providing a deeper foundation for the development of higher states of consciousness.
